Xbox One was Amazon UK’s biggest console launch ever. PS4 will beat it

Xbox One broke Amazon UK’s record for the fastest and biggest console launch in history.

Good news for Microsoft but better news for Sony, because according to the online retail giant, PS4 is going to beat that.

PS4 is currently the No.1 pre-order items on the firm’s video game chart, and it’s also No.1 in the Video Game Wished For charts. It’s also set to be a major Christmas present for many, as it is also No.1 as the PC and Video Games Most Gifted item.

Amazon is a good barometer for a console’s success as it sits behind GAME as the UK’s biggest games retailer.

The operation to deliver a new PlayStation to Amazon customers on release day is well underway,” Amazon’s VP of EU Retail Xavier Garambois said.

The pre-orders we have seen for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 show that gamers across the UK are eager to be amongst the first to try out the latest gaming experience, and the much-anticipated release of these next generation consoles is guaranteed to lead to hours of gaming pleasure. Also a favourite for Christmas lists in 2013, we can expect these consoles to be keeping children and adults alike entertained on Christmas day and into 2014.”
